We have been developing a test stand for fast He0 beam production. One of the major issues is how to transport effectively the He+ and He- beams from which the He0 beam is produced. The beam should be focused in two transverse focal points, the center of the charge exchange cell and the electrostatic accelerator. We studied the beam transport system and effect of space charge neutralization in the test stand by experiments and calculation.
